At The Park

The weather has been lovely the last couple of days. We had friends visiting the end of last week and we took them to the park so that we could get some fresh air and enjoy the sunshine. To our wonderful surprise, the pond was filled with geese! Wishing I had my good camera, I tried to snap up as many action-packed pictures as my phone would let me. Even though the pictures turned out okay, I am going to try and get into the habit of carrying my camera with me wherever I go. 

Once we said goodbye to our friends, Bug and I decided to go play in the park once more; this time bringing a picnic of cheerios and water. My little girl loves the outdoors, loves the sunshine, and loves collecting leaves, pine cones, rocks, and anything else that she finds. I really want to find her a little back-pack so that she can have a place to put all of her treasures.

I am really thankful that Bug loves being outside. I really do enjoy walking and getting fresh air, however, I find that the never-ending house work, homework, writing, or other activities seem to take precedence in my mind. I always kick myself for not taking that break that I need to enjoy the sun. Bug is a good little reminder to take that break. She will grab her shoes first thing in the morning and wear them all day if I let her. She will grab her coat or bang on the door when she wants to go outside. When I get caught up with the little chores of life, she reminds me to slow down, to take a break, to enjoy our surroundings. Its so good for the both of us to be outside, so important to our health. I am so thankful for my little Lovebug and I cannot wait to take her hiking this year!
